Sarah conducts research at Roskilde University Denmark, on the PhD project SUSTAIN. Her interdisciplinary project combines social science and public health. It aims to understand the drivers and constraints for institutionalisation of the One Health approach across Europe. 

Sarah’s study surveyed European experts to better understand institutional and political structures that enable the knowledge translation process for the One Health approach. 

Humboldt-Dachroeden, S. (2023). Translating One Health knowledge across different institutional and political contexts in Europe. One Health Outlook. 5, 1.

The study’s key results:

  • Indicated a lack of networks among scientists and between scientists and policy-makers, leading to difficulties in reaching political attention for One Health topics. 
  • Some One Health topics (e.g. antimicrobial resistance) are favoured more than others (e.g. environmental issues). 
  • National actors were perceived to be more important than international actors due to their roles and influences. 
  • The knowledge translation process is influenced by meanings and understanding of “languages” within the One Health approach. 

These findings show the importance of leadership to establish interdisciplinary networks among national and international groups. Improving science to policy communication is essential to define One Health issues with clear scope and targets.
